4Th of July, Nasa and a Baptism

My nephew Austin turned Eight this past summer. His baptism was over the fourth of July weekend, how awesome is that! So we headed down to Houston  to celebrate the fourth and for an even bigger celebration of Austin's decision to get baptized. We are so proud of you Austin you are such a  loving and wonderful example to  your family and cousins. We decided to add on the space museum onto this trip it was very patriot we thought;) Connor loves rockets and astronauts and  he loved being there. It was pretty amazing to see the Saturn V up close and walk all the way around it. Pretty incredible that they sent that into space. It was a great trip and always a fun time down in Houston with my brother. Thanks for having us and taking on such a big crowd all in one house.

Emily's Baby Blessing

We were fortunate to have lots of family in town for Emily baby blessing back in June. It made for a very special day! We are so grateful for our close friends and family who shared that day with us.  Gerret's parents were there to meet Emily, my aunt Kathy flew in to see her and my brother and his family came up from Houston!Our ward meets at eight thirty am so it makes for a incredibly early Sunday. So an even bigger thank you for getting out of bed to come;)
That weekend we also celebrated my nephews Austin turning 8 and Coles turning 4 birthday! made for a very packed and fun weekend with cousins at the splash pad and park!

                                                    Oh how my heart melts for these two!

                                                               My adorable nephews!

Swim lesson

Connor started swim lessons right when Preschool ended. It was a great way to get the summer started and get him comfortable in the water again.  Since just having had a baby it was a great way to keep him entertained and tire him out;) We took him to a friend who has been teaching kids how to swim for a long time right in her own backyard! He took to it very quickly and wanted to copy what the older kids were doing from the second day of class. Now that summer is about over I can say he has been amazing in the water and doesn't use his floaties anymore. He just wants to wear his goggles and try to dive down and get his toys. He kicks and goes under water super well, and loves jumping right in and swimming to the side all on his own now! He asks almost everyday when he gets home from Preschool if we can go to the pool. I will be sad when summer is officially over and our little man can't practice what he has been loving to do for the past few months.

      This kid has been fearless in the water. sometimes he freak me out with the stuff he wants do.
